When we were teenagers, my brothers and sisters and I played a game called Starlight; we’d made it up and it evolved over time. There was a deck of 64 cards. Here are some of my favourites, drawn by teenage me.

STARLIGHT. Top card in the deck.

image

ALCHEMIST. Part of the game was that everyone could choose a card that represented themselves. This was my card.

image

PHARAOH. This card was the most powerful/valuable. He gained a microphone in this edition because we’d just finished a school production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

image

POET. He’s writing something about himself and weeping.

image

OREAD. An oread is the spirit of a hill, just as a dryad is the spirit of a tree.

image

DRYAD. This was my brother Andrew’s card– he wore glasses at the time. This edition has his eyes drawn heavily blue, because Andrew has noticably blue eyes.

image

NAIAD. The spirit of a stream.

The full set is here: https://thurman.org.uk/starlight/ . Apologises for the card called MADMAN: I know better now.
